The Private House Stay's Guide


Scotland's fourth largest city sits on two prominent hills, Balgay and the Law, overlooking the River Tay. There is a fantastic freshness to the air in Dundee that has transformed itself into a city with impressive high-tech industries that adds to the high quality houses that were built out along the Tay towards Broughty Ferry when the city was built on wealth that was earned from the Jute trade. One of Dundee's big attractions is Captain Scott's ship, the Discovery. Dundee also has a thriving arts scene and plenty of good shops, bars and restaurants.
